BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Reakwon Jones couldn't believe his eyes. There was the football, rolling on the Memorial Stadium tuff on the very first play from scrimmage of Indiana's Big 10 game with Rutgers on Saturday.
Despite his initial disbelief, Jones recovered enough to scoop up the loose ball and carry it 17 yards to the end zone for a 7-0 Hoosiers lead 10 seconds into the contest. That touchdown sparked a 35-0 rout of the Scarlet Knights.
"It's not something you expect at the beginning of a game," said Jones, who had just one thought when he saw the loose ball. "I gotta go get it. I gotta score this."
